Fires and Floods

Well Oz being Oz we lurch from one natural extreme to another.

While the south (Victoria) is still battling wild fires the north (QLD and NSW) are now facing near cyclonic conditions and flooding rains.

At my Mum's place in northern NSW there have been 350 millimetres (14 inches) in the rain gauge since Saturday night!

The house there is well above flood levels but towns in the region are facing floods as are many cities in Queensland.

Oh my gosh! That's terrible! We've had extreme bitter cold over here (and I experienced our first frozen rain...scary!)

I hope everything will be okay.

Weird weather abounds around the globe. It was 55 today, rain, thunder, lighting, fog, etc. in the dead of a Michigan winter.

We had a terrible windstorm Wednesday night that washed all our snow away and knocked the power out for half the day on Thursday. Luckily it wasn't too cold but I almost died not being able to get on my computer plus I didn't get a cup of coffee until almost 2 o'clock!

Hope you are well :)
